described, i would say that activists are certainly useful. you can't necessarily take anything at face value because activists are -- have their own agenda, and some of them tend to be more short term. if you're running a company, you don't have the nimbleness and flex ann. you can't change your strategy every day. an activist can get into or out of a shareholding any day. and so you have -- you have different time horizons, maybe different agendas, and a company has to represent all its shareholders, ant not just a portion of its shareholders and think for the long term. but having said that, it's a good part of the cocktail of elements that a ceo should have giving inflooins fluns, and they should be listened to. they shouldn't be taken as gospel. their remarks should be discounted by what you know their interests are, but it should be foolish to take good advice from wherever you want to get it. >> barclays is making news today in cutting more head count. you guys done, happy with where we are as we sit here today? >> we're happy where we are. we're always sculpting our business. in
